We are ready to die protecting our votes, Adamawa APC says

All Progressives Congress

With few days to the Adamawa state governorship bye-election, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government to ensure credible election in Adamawa state on Saturday.

The Deputy Director of the APC’s gubernatorial candidate Campaign Organization, Abdulrahman Jimeta, in a campaign rally in Fufore Local Government of the state, said “INEC must take necessary measures to ensure election materials arrived on time”.

He said that “if INEC delays for one minute, the APC will protest for one hour”.

“We are not going to tolerate excuses such as absence of register, short supply of ballot papers or lack of ink and the rest. All we want is a peaceful and credible election but if anybody tries to cheat us, we will be worse than hell,” Mr. Jimeta said.

“We have stayed long in poverty under PDP, we have stayed long under state of emergency under PDP. In fact we are undergoing untold hardship and the only thing left is death, we are ready to die protecting our votes,” Mr. Jimeta said.

He lauded what he described as the commitment of Adamawa people to change and urged them not to be intimidated by anybody on election day. Mr. Jimeta asked Adamawa residents to come out en masse to vote and protect their votes.

Mr. Jimeta also commended the Nigerian military and other security agencies for their efforts in combating the threats of insurgency in the state and urged them not to allow politicians to use them on Election Day.

  • Otile

    Of course, you are ready to die protecting sharia in your hard won Caliphate. That’s what you have been doing all along fighting to death and liberating territories from betrayed Nigerian troops. This war has exposed the hypocrisy of the Northerners. At first they were saying that Northerners are patriotic people. Who could believe that they can shoot at Federal troops, betray them, thumb their nose at the Nigerian constitution by replacing it with Sharia? Peacefully divide Nigeria, patriotism my foot.

    • change 2014-2015

      They are ready to protect their vote that I’d what they are saying so stop bring propaganda on here

  • Abiodu

    Apc every time war war war which type of political party is this

    • Ha

      PDP is every time stealing, laudering money, securing illegal arms, training snipers, supplying arms to boko haram.

      • change 2014-2015

        We all know how the south Africa have seize much money from them the money they have stolen. .

    • change 2014-2015

      Apc have not preach war but what they are saying is that the pdp lead fg should intimidate the opposition during the eve of an election.

  • MrFesh

    They love death. We know.

    • Ha

      What do you expect them to love? Jonathan? PDP? They have been terrorized by the PDP led boko haram, killed, dislocated, and put under intentional unending state of emergency all for political and regional aims. What remains now? There is nothing they are yet to see. Only God knows what would happen to them if the boko haram-owned South African weapons have reached the Nigerian soil. On Monday another illegal boko haram arms deal was aborted in same South Africa. This should be enough for you to judge. Who really supplies this weapons to boko haram? We now know. Do you still believe that the Federal govt doesn’t know the sponsors of boko haram? If your answer is no, then why aren’t they being exposed and prosecuted? If your answer is yes, then is this govt competent enough to continue leading the country? Why again after some of the sponsors were mentioned by Davis, neither the govt nor the alleged individuals tried to press or sue Davis and claim damages in million of dollars? Isn’t this a good opportunity for them to make money?

      • MrFesh

        Don’t live Jonathan. Love death. Just don’t run when it comes. Ewu

        • change 2014-2015

          Nigeria is tired of impunity of the pdp

      • change 2014-2015

        Do you think you can come on here and be fooling we all know the sponsor of bh

        • Ha

          Am I the one fooling? It’s Steven Davis who was seconded by Wole Shoyinka. Hope you read well. You didn’t answer my question: If you believe the FG has not yet known the sponsors despite hundreds of high profile arrests, is the govt competent to rule? If you believe the govt knows the sponsors, why it couldn’t arrest and prosecute them? Iam sure if the opposition have any hand in boko haram the govt will be more than happy to deal with them considering their desperation to retain power.

    • change 2014-2015

      Apc have said the right thing INEC must ensure that the ballot papers arrive early.
